A well deserved break in the park

Wednesday was a rather productive day working from home and at the end of the afternoon I decided to reward my hard work with a stroll and an ice cream. I walked down toward 86th street and nothing, no good ice creams in my path. Since they closed the Cream Stone in my neighborhood, nothing has been the same. So I thought the best ice cream I could think of, which would be close by, was Mister Softee. You can say whatever you want about it, but I really like their strawberry sundays. So I walked over to the park thinking for sure, if they knew anything about good marketing, they would have a cart there, in front of a place where all the kids go, right? Right! I was in luck, and strawberry sunday it was.

So I crossed the street over to the park and sat at a bench to enjoy the ice cream,
the weather, the view. It was blissful really.

It’s quite a small park, but it’s very nice and it’s just a few blocks from where I live,
so indeed perfect for me.

This park hosts one of NYC landmarks Gracie Mansion, which is the official residency for the city’s governor. Although, our current governor preferred to remain in his Madison Ave. penthouse and save the city some money, which we all appreciate very much.

The view of the East River is breathtaking on a good weather day.

This is where I go for my jogs. Can you blame me for preferring to run outside?

  1. You made New York look sparsely inhabited! Must have been a rare moment…

  2. THE SEEDOur ChoicesIf you had a choice, right now, to choose to be with Christ Jesus in heaven would you choose to do so? Being human and having the power of choice, can we choose to ask God to grant us a wish? You see, there are three realms, earth, heaven, and hell. We live on the earth in the now, and we believe, as Christians, that at some point Christ will return to the earth and judge us in the final days. Between now and judgement day, death will end our stay on earth and God will judge our fate when that happens.Christ said: “And all things whatever you ask for in prayer, believing, you shall receive.” What if, we asked God to stop this game that is being played out on earth, and grant us the one wish of living with him in heaven right now. What if, we choose to not allow Satan any more control over our lives and our future and made the decision to ask God to end this game. What if we, as human beings, with the power of choice, made a conscious decision to choose Christ Jesus, right now, over the day to day challenges and temptations that Satan offers.Say, if in 2015, we were able to gather 9 billion, or 8 billion or 5 billion people, Jews, Catholics, Baptists, Protestants, Jahovah Witnessers, Lutherians, Episcapalians, Muslims, Buddists, Hindu’s, and every other worshiper, together to pray to God, asking him to bring us home. If we ask Jesus Christ to come, would he be with us??? If we asked him to bring us home to his kingdom in heaven, would we receive??? Do you want to stop playing this earthly game??? Our home is in heaven and not here on earth. Is that a challenge?? Can you see the vision???Christ has said: “And I say to you, ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; and he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks it shall be opened.” We can ask billions of people to take one moment in time to act as one, crying out to God, our heavenly Father, “Take us home.” OH GOD, take us from the land of the Pharaohs!!! Take us from the hands of evil, bring us home to your kingdom!!! Can we ask strong enough?? Can we ask hard enough?? Can we ask loud enough??? Do you believe???Christ said: “And in that day you shall ask me nothing. Amen, amen, I say to you, if you ask the Father anything in my name, he will give it to you. Hitherto you have not asked anything in my name. Ask, and you shall receive, that your joy may be full.” Do we want to be filled with eternal joy?? Why have we not asked???Can you imagine how we can make this happen?? Can you understand the power that God has given us in order that we may choose our own destiny, right now. We don’t have to wait until tomorrow, while Satan tricks and traps millions more souls into the fires of hell!!! The decision is ours. Can we choose?? Can we make this happen?? Can we start a holy movement around the world and set the date of our going home??? Or are our hearts hardened so much by this earthly realm that we can not conceive of the idea that God will grant our request???Christ said: ” I say to you further, that if two of you shall agree on earth about anything at all for which they ask, it shall be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together for my sake, there am I in the midst of them.” Christ come into the mist of millions, of billions and grant our wish!!!Take the poll!Leave a comment and express your belief!!!Make it happen!!!This is your seed, plant it and watch it grow!!Pass this message on to your friends and family!!Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of thy faithful and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love!Give a contribution! Donate to this cause!
